Russ Goble is just some guy who tests software for a living. But, he is very opinionated. Whether it's politics, economics, sports, pop culture or technology, he has an opinion. This is why his wife and friends are supportive of this website. They see it as a release for all that crap in his head. So that, maybe, Russ will shut up at the next Super Bowl Party.
The opinions expressed here are the opinions of Russ Goble, and Russ Goble only. They are not necessarily the opinions of his wife, his friends, George Bush, Tom Glavine, the Pope, and certainly not Tom Daschle.

This article is getting a lot of play in the blogosphere. Foreign visitors will now be fingerprinted. But not all visitors, just "All nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan and Syria". As is being noted elsewhere, 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia (and if memory serves, the others were Egyptian & Pakistani). None of these nations' visitors are being targeted. And they are starting this program on September 11th. That's just a bad joke. The government is essentially saying, "we are going to use the memory of September 11th to start a program aimed at preventing another September 11th, but we aren't going to target individuals who have any similarities to the perpetrators of September 11th." Any wonder why Neal Boortz spends 95% of his time railing against GOVERNMENT?

Here we go again: This is my 2nd go at this weblog thing. I tried starting this a couple of months ago, but after only a couple of post, life intervened, and I didn't make the time to keep up with it. I hope to do better this time, assuming anyone ends up reading this site. My goal is ramble on about many a subject. But I will focus primarily on the politics of our day, economic policy, pop culture, and a little baseball and football anecdotes thrown in. Over the next week or so, I will posts essays on my general outlook the political world, why I’m reluctantly Republican, the problem with “Europeans”, and why I love America, the South, and Atlanta. Feel free to e-mail if you have any comments, good or bad, or simply asking me to shut up.
